Hepatitis B Vaccination

Employees covered by the University's Bloodborne Pathogens Program are entitled to receive the Hepatitis B Vaccination series at no cost. If the worker was previously immunized, they are eligible for a titer to determine immunity.

To receive the vaccination, workers must follow these steps:

  1. The worker must complete Bloodborne Pathogens Training.
  2. The worker must complete the Hepatitis B vaccination consent/waiver form and submit it to Research Safety. This verifies that they have been made aware of the vaccination availability and have accepted, declined, or indicated previous immunization.
    1. If you are an NSIS user, complete the form in NSIS (in the "registrations" menu)
    2. If you are not an NSIS user, contact Dr. Andrea Hall at ahall@northwestern.edu or 3-8300
  3. The worker must complete the Clinic Passport for their campus. The PI or supervisor must provide a chart string from an appropriate account to ensure payment. The employee is NOT responsible for payment.
    1. Chicago - NMPG Corporate Health Clinical Passport
    2. Evanston - Northshore University HealthSystem OMEGA Clinic Passport
  4. The worker should contact their campus occupational health provider to schedule the vaccination series (3 shots over a 6-month period).
